What is Hypnosis?



Hypnosis is a state of consciousness used to reprogram the subconscious mind. When under hypnosis, you put your mind and body into a peaceful state of focused attention, concentration, and heightened learning. This allows you to be more susceptible to suggestions for self-improvement or behavior modification. The goal is to put the subconscious and conscious mind in harmony, which in turn helps give you greater control over your behavior and emotions.
